The system is a non-invasive and highly portable method of malignant (cancerous) tumor detection (differentiating it with benign tumors) without biopsy within a few seconds. Studies suggest that malignant tumor cells have less potassium ions and more sodium ions. Hence there is a difference in the conductivity/dielectric properties between cancerous and non-cancerous tumors. This device compares the conductivity and dielectric properties of the tumor with the normal cells and by analyzing the difference in dielectric properties determines whether the tumor is cancerous or not. An imaging system is also proposed using a matrix of electrodes for easier visualization.
